    I pray for both families, the loss of Larry and the Loss of Dee, people are so quick to voice an opinion on “what they think they know” one thing about this situation there is a higher power that sit up high and look down low and thats the only power that will judge this situation. Both families were ruin behind this and there are so many unanswered questions and things that doesnt make any since but regardless of that why don’t we all show these families some respect especially LL’s family their son, brother, father, friend is gone but his presence, his spiritlives on through everyone that loves him. Dee’s family is hurting as well his kids, mom, brother friends and family there torn in disbelief, I’m telling you until something like this knocks at your door or hit home you can point fingers all day but u will have a different story to tell if you’ve be through it.
